Dubai and the wider Islamic world are head-over-heels in love with Sustainable Development, Green Economy and Fintech (Financial Technology) because it will lead to the demise of Capitalism and Free Enterprise. Islamic theology is claimed to be very compatible with the green movement.
Essentially, ICLEI is promoting Public-Private Partnerships to finance green projects and development of Smart Cities. The fear factor to do so is a) population is still exploding and b) most people are moving to cities. Like climate change, both are wildly exaggerated.
The terms ‘circular economy’ and Sustainable Development are UN terms that are tied together as synonymous thoughts. It stresses efficiency and cutting waste. As a Technocracy, China is agressively leading the global community in its path.
Finally, someone has correctly pegged the role of Marx, robotics, the destruction of capital and hence, the destruction of Capitalism and Free Enterprise itself. Zbigniew Brzezinski in Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, developed the idea that Marxism was a mere stepping stone to the end result of societal evolution, which he called the Technetronic Era, aka Technocracy. Thus, Capitalism will die and be replaced by Technocracy.
As Technocracy and its Green Economy encroaches on Capitalism and Free Enterprise, traditional economic models are being forever corrupted with non-economic factors. Traditional economic analysis depends on factual historical data. Green Economic analysis factors in unknown and unprovable climate change factors. The result will be absolute gibberish.
Granted, this is an industry press-release, but it underscores the globalist mentality that China is in the Green Economy driver’s seat for decades to come. Investment capital is flowing into China, which is an engineered Technocracy, because it is viewed as a safe haven for fellow Technocrats.
The financing of Sustainable Development, aka Green Economy and Technocracy, is being driven by the Islamic nation, United Arab Emirates, in conjunction with China. The U.N. is backing the program. Note that the UAE is a founding member of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AAIB) that is normally attributed to China. Both China and the UAE are prime examples of Technocracy in action.
Elon Musk is running one of the biggest alternative energy scams ever. The Technocrat mind does not worry about conflicting facts that disprove their case. If all government subsidies were withdrawn, Musk’s entire empire would collapse into bankruptcy within months, if not weeks.
Vladimir Lenin said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” Hitler followed suit: “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” The world has believed the UN’s lies now accepts them as truth. This is the grand Technocrat delusion.
As Trump plays the Protectionist card on global trade, China is wasting no time in taking over the lead with globalization. It intends to re-open the famous trade route called the Silk Road, which connected Asia with Europe. Instead of dirt roads and paths, the new “Belt and Road” project will span 65 nations and cost upwards of $1 Trillion. However, it will revolutionize global trade and give China a wide-open door to Europe and the Mideast.
As a Technocracy, China will naturally seek to build infrastructure to connect to as many trading centers as possible. Belt and Road will be the largest infrastructure ever undertaken. Meanwhile, Trump’s hardline rhetoric against China during the campaign cycle has turned to sawdust. China is wasting no time to take advantage of it.
